I am a primary school teacher working in Swords, Co. Dublin. I received my education in University College Dublin (Bachelor of Arts), in Marino Institute of Education (Higher Diploma in Education) and in Maynooth University (Master of Education). I present a podcast, which can be found through all major podcast apps, as well as directly at matterseducational.podbean.com.
My research and professional interests include:
- Teaching and learning Irish in primary schools
- Mathematical thinking for primary school pupils
- Education policy
- Critically reflective practice
- Legal issues surrounding the education system
- ICT in education
- The science of learning
- Evidence-based practice
All articles are my own, unless otherwise stated. This website and its associated podcast are funded entirely by myself and are run voluntarily. This is not a commercial website – I don’t sell anything.
